Poggenpohl kitchens adorn London’s famous Ocean House – originally the headquarters of Titanic’s shipping company

The famous Oceanic House is best known for its original use as the headquarters of White Line Star, the Titanic’s shipping company. Built in 190, the property was later converted into a bank, later into department of British Ministry of Defence, a restaurant and now into six truly luxurious apartments and a duplex penthouse.

Oceanic House boasts views of Big Bend and Trafalgar Square and, as part of the £100 million renovations, the property now features striking Poggenpohl kitchens in each of its luxury apartments. The kitchens present a beautiful modern aesthetic, with a linear design that leads the eye along the kitchen toward the breath-taking views.

The design team from Poggenpohl’s Wigmore Kitchens studio used simple door designs in a contemporary Pebble Grey and Terra matt lacquered finishes. Highly polished worktops reflect the ample influx of natural light, alongside the subtle task lighting that is integrated into the ceiling. These ultra-contemporary elements dramatically contrast against the original elements of the building, including the antique wood doors – paying homage to the buildings rich history
